Terrible stout..

Its black and mildly drinkable but its not a stout..

Red/ Amber color no head.

Smell is a hint of malts but not much going on..

Taste is pretty bad, some roasted bitterness followed by a watery flavor that makes you want to gag.

Feel is thin as water.. So far from what a stout should be.

Overall I'm always glad i tried something new but I will never but this again, for sure..

Pours a very dark brown, basically black, not head except for some creamy bubbles around the rim.

Smells of light vanilla, cream, milk chocolate, something like lactose maybe?, fairly light aroma but nice.

Some tobacco flavor, milk and vanilla again, a touch of chocolate, light roast or coffee.

Pretty soft creamy mouthfeel, good carb, very drinkable stout.

6.4/10

Near black pour with just a hint of brown around the edges. Just shy of one finger khaki head. Very light retention. Very thin lace.

Nose is mainly milk chocolate. Light roast coffee and just a hint of hop presence.

Smooth milk chocolate hits first, followed by a sweet finish with a hint of tobacco. Light coffee and mild hops add to the dry end.

Pretty easy to drink. No risks here, just a decent glass of stout. Nice creamy body, without feeling heavy.

You could do worse than this if you want a dark beer in Nashville.

Had this one on tap at Blackstone ... presented as a semi-opaque black color with a thick, persistent head and good lacing. Nose is of roasted malt grains and a touch of cocoa. Predominantly sweet. As expected, very malty in tatse with some residual hoppiness making this one rather dry in it's finish. Lingering nutty character. A little thinner than I would have liked, but a good meduim-body none the less. Just a bit thin overall. A decent oatmeal stout to be sure. Not the best and not the worst ... not the best beer on tap at the Blackstone either, but worth a pint for sure.

This is one of my favorite styles, but I think the version that I brew is better than this.

Just a little too bitter, almost tart really. I wish it were a bit smoother.

Had this one on tap at the Beer Sellar, after being offered a sample. Good looking beer, black in color with a thick, brown head. Good stability and thinck lacing. Smell had some roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. Very malty sweet taste, but I found myself wanting more flavor. Also found it a bit thin, not a full body like I was expecting. A good oatmeal stout, but I think I have had better. Still gets good marks, but I will always score a small local brewery a bit higher (just my opinion).
